Due to life, this blog has been horribly neglected with postings. We are actually very busy doing video and blog show reviews for Dramafever but I just never remember to post here. So, I started a facebook page so that it will be easier to share the crazy thing we enjoy and laugh at. Take the link and like us.
Dramafever had their first celebrity google hangout. Kim Woo Bin was awesome enough to be the first and help promote his movie “The Technicians” which is currently showing on Dramafever. They even allowed members a chance to talk to him directly. I thought about signing up for that, but figured that it would probably be more fun for the younger ones. As much as I like Kim Woo Bin, we shouldn’t scare the poor boy. lol
My friends at DF worked really hard to make this google hangout go well and I just have to say that they did a great job. Even though I didn’t talk directly with Woo Bin, it still felt intimate and personal and I smiled like a giddy school girl the whole time.
Some of the things I found most interesting from the interview:
-he likes both cats and dogs.
-he likes to draw and paint and considering he mentioned having all the supplies for such passions, I imagine he has an art room.
-His favorite Hollywood celebrity is Brad Pitt. Now this became really funny because they don’t call him Brad. For whatever reason, mostly due to the quirks of the language, they say Bang instead. Well, that’s the Korean word for bread. *chuckles* Pair that up with polite honorifics for an older male and basically they call him ‘older brother bread”. I will NEVER be able to think about Brad Pitt’s name the same way again.
-He is serious about becoming a good actor. So he is making a list of 100 goals that will help become a good actor. Attributes to work on, skills to gain. He does the same thing with his character developments. He mentioned in another interview that each character he portrays has to answer a 100 item questionnaire. That sort of dedication is going to lead him to great places.
For more of this interview, you can watch this link to the hangout yourself. I have one more question… whose office were they using?
Kim Woo Bin was such a great sport about this whole thing. He was a champ. Great job.
Hyun Bin’s first move after leaving his mandatory military service was to play King Jeongjo in Fatal Encounter. Excellent movie, but make sure you understand the basic history of his situation when he took the thrown or the first 10 minutes will be very confusing.
Here’s my Dramafever movie review. Aunnie and Firnlambe join me and discuss what we liked and didn’t like. I also included that background history information that you will need if you don’t know who this character is already.
I notice this the most in the Hong Sisters dramas, but there are others that are just as savvy in their use. Wendilynn points out that the lyric is “dancing Jews” rather than dancing juice. In my defense I saw dancing juice on many of the lyrics sites. Thought it was a reference to alcohol. Eh. live and learn.
According to this poster, the K Drama festival runs later this fall at the Folk Village October through November. I considered selling a kidney to go, but realized I couldn’t arrange it and recover fast enough.
